FOCUS | CVA Main Gallery | November 21 - December 7
Opening Reception/Awards Program - Saturday, November 22, 3 p.m.
The University of Toledo Department of Art hosts the 2014 edition of the FOCUS Show, the premier exhibition of high school artwork from Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. Nearly 1100 works from student artists from 25 different schools were juried by a panel of artists and instructors. Just over 200 pieces were selected for the final exhibition, now entering its 36th year.
The exhibit opens November 21 and runs through December 7, with an awards ceremony and opening reception set for November 22 beginning at 3:00pm. Several participating schools will present superintendent and principal awards in addition to 20 Juror’s Awards that will be presented. This show is free and open to the public.
FAUX SPACE EXHIBIT | Ritter Planetarium Lobby (main campus) | November 5 - December 31
Opening Reception - Wednesday, November 5, 6:30 p.m.
Students in the Department of Art’s introductory photo course, ART 2030: Photography taught by Professor Deborah Orloff, last semester will have works on display in the lobby. Students were challenged to create photos that invoke a sense of space - in the extraterrestrial sense. They used a diverse range of materials to create their images including food, toys, pots, glitter, fire, lasers, smoke, and oils. All images were made with a DSLR camera; they are not computer generated or shot above the surface of the planet!
This exhibit is free and open to the public. It can be viewed whenever Ritter Planetarium is open to the public - Friday evenings at 7:30pm and Saturdays at 1pm. Visit the Ritter Planetarium web site.

GUEST ARTIST TARA POLANSKY | October 6
- Artist Lecture - 2:30 p.m. (Haigh Auditorium)
- Lithophanes Demonstration - 6 p.m. (Ceramics Studio, Glass Crafts Building)
- Artists Guided Tour - 4:30 p.m. (Blair Museum of Lithophanes, Toledo Botanical Gardens, Elmer Drive, Toledo)
Visiting artist Tara Polansky, whose exhibit, "Revelations & Withholdings," is on display at the Blair Museum of Lithophanes at the Toledo Botanical Gardens, will speak at the UT, present a demonstration, and also lead a special artists guided tour.
Artist statement: "Much of my work coalesces around photographic source imagery including snapshots found in my family’s old photo albums, newspaper obituary photos, and found school portraits. Ultimately, I am interested in the way portraits, which are intended to give insight, often render their subjects more anonymous and generic by idealizing them. I am concerned with the way nostalgia may encourage us to forget that the past included tragedy and struggle in addition to joy, and I raise questions about how we see, remember, and imagine."
